Things could be worse, you could be in North Korea

I just read an article in the Economist about a black market for Chinese cell phones in the region of North Korea near the border. Apparently the internet does not really exist there. There is a small network, but there are only government-regulated sites available on it. Email works, but multiple people generally share one address. The illicit Chinese cell phones are being used to surf the internet over the wireless network which does not stop at international boundaries.
